The people of South Waziristan will suffer greatly. See our story from yesterday for more on refugees.
There’s many stories coming out of the South Waziristan War zone, claiming the Pakistan Military has killed certain numbers of “Taliban”, and then the “Taliban” are saying that they have killed many Pakistan Military. See The Long War Journal and also Dawn.com for Pakistan Government figures.
The Pakistan Government has been loose with the facts when reporting on “Head Militants” being killed in the past, only for them to show up at a press conference days later. One thing is for sure, the Pakistan Military’s artillery is indescriminatly killing people and destroying buildings and infrastructure while “attacking” the “Taliban”. The same goes for the helicopter rocket attacks, and the aircraft shooting and bombing the “Militants” area. The destruction of the major villages and cities of South Waziristan will be the result of the U.S. forcing the Pakistan Government to attack their own people. It is a civil war, being fed by the U.S. in weapons and tactical assistance, and the U.S. Assasination Drones are in the sky circling the area, watching all below, and ready to unleash a Hellfire Missile on a “Taliban Target” below.
For the past three months, the Pakistan Military has been blocking the incoming and outgoing of food crops. Food has withered on the vines and trees. Many local people that count on their crops to survive have lost their crops and have no money from sales nor anything to barter. This is the tragedy of this attack.
We demand to see a report from Swat Valley. Interview 10 families that have returned, hear their stories, let them describe what they found once they returned. Interview 10 famlies that are still in Refugee Camps somewhere. Let’s hear from them, let’s hear what has happened to their lives. We call upon the world press to investigate “Life After Swat Valley Pakistan Military Attack”.
